How to Cure Nuisance Barking

Pet Information March 3, 2014

how to Cure Nuisance Barking

Barking dogs are the BIGGEST form of noise
complaints in any neighbourhood.
It may not be your dog; it could be the dogs in your
neighbourhood – Here are a few suggestions on how to
reduce barking dog noise to an acceptable level.

5 Easy steps to Cure Nuisance Barking in dogs.

  1.  Look at the reason the dog is barking and take note
    of the time of day. This will give a good indication as
    to the cause. You may be able to remove the cause or
    leave the dog in an area away from the cause.
  2. Entertain and Distract – A dog at home alone will need to be kept mentally active.
    • Why not scatter your dog’s biscuits across the lawn. It’s going to take a bit of time
    to find breakfast, and he will most likely keep looking and not start barking.
    • Rotate a group of toys to keep them interesting and unique.
    • Create a sandpit or shell and bury some toys for your dog to find.
  3. Try blocking off the dogs view of the street or put up a barrier to move the dog
    away from busy streets or footpaths.
  4. Engage the services of a home dog walker for a ‘lunch time play time’ a friendly neighbour may be willing to pop over to have a pat. Introduce your dog to the neighbours so your dog is familiar with them and the strange noises they make.
  5. Barking dog products. Speak to a specialist about products for retraining barking habits.
    • Citronella, Sonic, static and vibration collars all differ in the way they work. Each dog is different and so is the reason for the barking so getting the right advice is essential.
    • That Barking Dog next door… There are products available to help control barking dogs next door or around the neighbourhood. The Out Door Sonic Bark House uses an uncomfortable high pitched noise to distract the dog from barking.

Call us now for more information, tell us a bit about your dog and the barking issue and we will see what we can suggest to help.

Microchip – What is it and why do we need it?

Pet Information January 23, 2014

microchipWhat is a microchip?

Microchips are a Radio Frequency Identification Device that is implanted in an animal with a sterile implantation device in the soft scruff of the neck. Microchips are the most effective form of permanent identification for pets.

Why do we need to microchip our pets?

It is very important to ensure your pet cat or dog is microchipped because if your pet cat or dog becomes lost, you are far more likely to be reunited if he or she is microchipped.

What if I change my contact details?

The easiest way to change your contact details is to search http://www.petaddress.com.au using your pet’s microchip number. Petaddress will redirect you to the database that lists your pet’s microchip number so that you may contact them directly. Some registries provide Change of Address forms on their websites.

Here is a list of current microchip registries:

  1. Australasian Animal Registry
  2. Central Animal Records
  3. Petsafe
  4. Pet Register
  5. HomeSafeID
  6. Pet Registry NSW

If you don’t know your pets microchip number contact your veterinarian, council or animal welfare shelter who can scan your pet and supply you with the microchip number

Cute puppies for sale? Don’t be fooled

Pet Information January 23, 2013

In January this year, SCAMwatch issued a radar alert warning consumers about classified ads offering non-existent pedigree puppies for sale. If you are in the market for a new puppy, you should be extra careful—the ads have resurfaced in local newspapers across the country, as well as online classifieds.

Once again, scammers are offering ‘AKC registered’ puppies for sale at too-good-to-be-true prices. However, the number of breeds on offer has expanded from Yorkies and bulldogs to include pugs, Boston terriers, Australian shepherds and beagles.  Some of the ads also include photos of very cute puppies.

The aim of the scam is to try to persuade potential buyers to pay to have the puppy transported to their address. The puppy could be located in Australia or overseas. Payment is to be made via money transfer, but the puppy is never delivered and the scammer pockets your money.

Protect yourself from these scams

  • Too-good-to-be-true prices for pedigree pups call for caution.
  • If you are unsure about an ad that you have seen, seek advice from a breeder or kennel association, a vet or your local pet shop.
  • Avoid any arrangement with a stranger that asks for up-front payment via money order, wire transfer or moneygram.
  • Do an internet search using the exact wording in the ad—many well-known scams can be found this way.

Remember: it is impossible to import a dog from overseas into Australia in a few weeks as quarantine procedures need to be followed. For details check the requirements with the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service.

Find out more about up-front payment scams and how you can protect yourself from scams.

To report a suspected scam, visit the report a scam page or call the ACCC Info centre on 1300 302 502.

A puppy is a dog for LIFE

Pet Information January 23, 2013

Beautiful, soft, cheeky, bouncy, lovable, cute, cuddly all describe our new puppy – and everybody agrees. BUT, puppies grow up and become dogs with needs such as attention, interaction, walks etc.

  Be aware puppies (and all dogs, regardless of breed, sex, or size) have an inbred desire to get the most out of everything and try and seize leadership. The puppy does this with their littermates – through play fights, games etc to determine the fastest, the strongest and the best leader. This is ongoing normal behaviour and will be enhanced during several critical periods in the puppy’s life.   We are tempted to be drawn into these power games with puppies and like to treat them like babies, only to discover that the puppy starts nipping, biting and chasing the kids – because puppies see them as littermates or prey.   60% of a puppy’s learning is between the 8th and 16th week – an ideal period for a puppy class, or puppy preschool. Here they learn the right social manners with people and with other dogs (puppies) – a crucial learning period on the road to achieving a well behaved, balanced, problem-free dog for its whole life.

  At 8 weeks, the puppy will not yet be fully immunised and there are risks, however, vets and canine professionals strongly believe the benefits of attending a reputable puppy class outweigh any risk to the puppy. A professionally run class will have a clean and safe training environment and supply guidelines to minimise risks – whilst ensuring the puppy class is enjoyable for the family and their pup – maximising learning and having a fun time.   A small investment in time and money, but a very important commitment to early and ongoing training for your dog will get the best out of your friend for life!

Why Adopt? (supplied by Pet Rescue)

Pet Information January 23, 2013

My parents always advised me never to buy a used car, because I would just be buying “somebody else’s problems.” Unfortunately, that’s how some people view rescue pets – as pets that weren’t wanted because they had problems and didn’t make good companions.

In the vast majority of cases, that’s just not true! Most dogs who come into rescue are not given up because they were “bad dogs” or have behavioural problems. Unfortunately, many people buy pets without thinking about the time, effort, and expense involved in keeping them. These pets end up in shelters, along the side of the road, or if they’re lucky – in rescue.

In fact, the most common reasons a pet ends up with a rescue organization include the following:

  • The owners don’t have time for the pet.
  • The owners find that they can’t afford either basic vet care or the expense involved in treating an illness or injury.
  • The owner dies or goes into a nursing home.
  • The owners divorce and neither party can keep the pet. (You would be amazed at how many pets end up in rescue as the result of a divorce!)
  • A young couple has a child and no longer has time for the pet, or the pet no longer fits into their “lifestyle.”
  • The owner is moving to an apartment building that doesn’t allow pets.

This is not to say that all rescue pets come with perfect manners, perfectly socialized and housebroken. The pets who have been neglected and abandoned need training and gentle discipline – but so do all the puppies & kittens people buy! And a rescue pet usually needs much less training than a baby pet.

Another myth is that rescue pets are, by definition, inferior to pets bought from a breeder or pet store. Pets who are rescued came originally from show breeders, pet stores, and hobby breeders – pretty much everywhere. They are a cross-section of the pet population, and, as such, are no more or less likely to have genetic problems than any other pet.

But I Want a Particular Breed! Purebred pets – Don’t shy away from considering adoption of a pet from a shelter because you have a preference for a specific breed. About 25 percent to 30 percent of shelter populations are purebreds. If you’re looking for a specific breed, contact or visit your local animal shelter or breed rescue group and ask them to contact you should a pet of that breed becomes available.

Designer dogs – People spend big money on labradoodles, spoodles and other “designer dogs” when their local shelter is full to the brim with the exact same cross breed dogs. Except the shelter likely calls the labradoodle by its true name – a poodle X!

Reasons to Choose a Rescue Dog or Cat Those of us who volunteer in rescue all have at least one rescue and we know what terrific pets they can be! Here are some reasons to consider a rescue if you are ready to add a new pet to your family.

You’re not starting from scratch with an older pet – When you buy a puppy, you’re essentially bringing an infant into your home… a completely untrained, unsocialised little critter who thinks the crate you bought for him is a jail (and who cries to get out… at 3 AM!), the newspaper you put down for him to squat on is a wonderful toy to be shredded, your new shoes are much tastier than rawhide, and your best carpet is an excellent substitute for grass when nature calls!

Most rescue dogs have been house dogs in the past, come with some basic manners and may have even been living with a foster family to teach them the ropes.

An older cat most likely will be content being alone – a perfect match for someone who has an active lifestyle.

The bond is strong – Contrary to the belief that an adult dog cannot bond with a new family, a dog that has been abandoned once is usually eager to become part of a loving pack, where they feel safe and secure, and are likely to act accordingly. We find that rescue dogs are generally eager to please their new owners. Animals rescued from puppy mills often want to be in your lap at all times and will follow you from room to room, just to be near you.

Adult cats may sleep at the foot of your bed, in a cozy spot in your bedroom or under your bed. A kitten will most likely run around all night climbing and play attacking anything low enough to jump on – including you.

Fewer vet fees – Rescue pets have had physical examinations, have been desexed and are up to date on shots. When you buy a puppy or kitten, you pay for the pet AND for the vaccinations, desexing and other medical expenses.

What you see is what you get – When you buy a baby pet, you can never really be sure what type of adult you’re going to get.

All puppies are cute and playful, but their adult personalities aren’t visible until they’re about two years old. So you don’t know whether you’re getting a dog who wants to play all the time (ALL the time!) or a couch potato. When you rescue a dog, you know what the dog’s personality is like and whether it fits with what you want in a dog companion. You also know in advance about any problem areas you, as the new owner, will have to address.

A cat’s personality has already been developed by the time it’s one year old. A lap cat will continue to be a lap cat and it is easy to determine if the new cat will work out in a multi-cat household. With an adult cat, you definitely know what you’re getting.

Adult pets are generally better for families – Adult pets generally are better with kids. Pups and kittens can play rough and cause harm to children by biting, nipping or scratching. When excited, large breed pups can knock children over accidentally. Children sometimes handle animals too roughly and can cause harm.

Adult pets are more mellow and more able to get themselves out of harms way and because of this are often more patient with children.

It teaches your kids good values – Face it – we live in an extremely materialistic society, in which TV teaches kids that everything can be bought, that they should get their parents to buy them everything, and that anything worth having costs a lot of money. Adopting a rescue pet for your family presents a wonderful opportunity to teach your children basic values of compassion and caring, and also about the value of second chances.

Why Aren’t Rescue Pets Free? We are asked this question frequently. Some people think that, since they are willing to take a homeless dog or cat off our hands, they should be given the pet without an adoption fee.

Well, that would be nice, and in a perfect world, it would be possible. But vet care for rescue pets costs money, which our members must recover, at least in part, in order to go on rescuing. Each pet must have a physical examination, receive any required vaccinations, be desexed and, for dogs, be tested for heartworm. The rescuer pays for these procedures out of her or his own pocket.

For the most part, the adoption fees reflect the basic medical expenses incurred for the pet. If that pet had any extra medical treatment, it’s likely that the fee you are charged won’t cover these costs and the rescue will actually be out of pocket.

Please keep this fact in mind: The adoption fee for an rescue pet is usually somewhere between $50 and $300. The going rate for a pet store puppy that, in all likelihood came from a puppy mill, is between $400 and $700. A kitten up to $100. And you still have to pay for vaccinations, microchipping and desexing on top of that. Rescue pets are a bargain!

OK, I’m convinced – where do I sign? Adopting a pet is a great joy and a huge responsibility, so shouldn’t be taken lightly. Examining your lifestyle and household is critical to making a good adoption match.

If you travel a lot and work long hours away from home, it’s probably not the right time for you to adopt. If your schedule keeps you busy, adopting an adult cat might be the best option for you.   If you’re planning a major lifestyle change – marriage, moving or a new baby – hold off on adopting until things settle down in your life. Marriage, moving and new babies are the primary reasons pets are relinquished to the RSPCA and other shelters.   Pets can be expensive; food, pet supplies, grooming, and veterinary bills that can easily reach hundreds of dollars. Are you prepared to pay for everything your pet needs for the next 10-15 years?   I’m still keen – what should I expect and how do I find a good rescue group?   Before adopting, you will probably be screened. Most rescue groups conduct thorough interviews before allowing you to adopt an animal in their care. This might seem intimidating, but it’s actually also your chance to screen the rescue group!

There are plenty of people and organisations who claim to be rescue. Some are fantastic; how do you tell?

Signs of a good rescue group:

  •   They are willing to spend time discussing your requirements, lifestyle and expectations. They should be happy to address any concerns and answer any questions you have. They should also be open to you contacting them in the future for pet advice if you need it.
  • They have a genuine interest for the welfare of their animals both now and in the future. There should be an adoption contract that includes a clause that you return the pet to them should the adoption not work out.
  • They have an in-depth adoption screening process. While it can be intimidating to have a stranger ask personal questions, the more open and detailed you are with the group, the better able they are to match you with the right pet.
  • And most importantly – Desexed, desexed, desexed! If the group is willing to give you a pet of breeding age that has not been desexed then you are not dealing with a reputable organisation interested in animal welfare. Do not do business with them.
